Description: Mbuna setup lots of rock, 250lbs. I have 8 assorted malawiis right now along with a pleco and senegal bichir. I hope to add more in the future. Using a Fluval 405 canister and an inline 300W heater. Also a dual hood with 1 5500k 48in light and an actinic 48in, both 32 watts. Just put 2 moonlights in and have the whole system on a day/night lighting timer.
Advice: Use some sort of epoxy with extensive rock work, especially in an all glass tank.
Fish Kept: They just said assorted malawii so i dont know the exact genus. Also a senegal bichir and a marble high fin pleco.
Corals/Plants: 2 anubias one is doin alright one is dug up constantly, i need to put more sand on it but they sure like to pick on that one.
Tank Size: 55 gallons
Quote: If you ever drop your keys into a pit of molten lava just let em go cus man, there gone.

COMMENTS

thanks, its been a lot of fun building it i hope to put some pics up with the moonlight going its pretty neat. I dont know exactly how much the rocks displace but i figure i got close to 40 gallons as when i do a 10 gallon change it takes out about 1/4 of the water. fish avatar
so basically it's a 25gal tank? fish avatar
This is probably my favorite tank on here. Great rockwork. fish avatar
